Oh god, what if it's another ARG.... ilovebees was good, the millions and millions of ARGs which followed kinda killed it.

I don't think it will be, for a couple of reasons. The most important are that MS only sent this to members of the press, and they directly tied it to Halo 3 (unline most args which are more cryptic). The proximity to the public beta could be a clue that it's related to that - perhaps giving them hands-on time with it before it releases.

This was spotted over at HBO.

Spike TV lists in their programming for May 11,

"Halo 3 Beta Special
Friday May 11, 1AM"

Since they are likely part of the media Microsoft invited, this is pretty solid confirmation of what's being show.

Nice find, Ghaleon. Now, the question remains, WHAT TIME ZONE ARE THEY TALKING ABOUT?! =(

Five days to download? That seems a little excessive for a 1GB file.

How big were the H2 maps? And how many days did it take them to get that mess sorted out?

That's because they were released for two completely different platforms.

You guys are silly

Of course it wont take 5 days to download. but it will alleviate the mass pressure on the download server. this way people can download any time between the 5 days.

I dunno how big the map files were, they downloaded really really fast though.

I just downloaded command and conquer 3 demo. that was a gig and it took about 15 minutes with my cable modem.

Frank posts on GAF that it's MP only.

Is it just going to be beta stuff, or will there be campaign?


Unbunch panties. MP.

I think that narrows it down to the Beta unveiling.

I'm not in either... good thing, though, since it's Finals week... still, I'm crazy jealous. List of people in so far: Gamble Mr Voc squick3n Ghaleon Blaze Anybody else? Questions: So, um, lunge melees? M6G - worthwhile for someone who refuses to dual wield? MA5C - as awesome as it looks? For the love of God, finally, someone please describe the needler in non-journalist terms (i.e. if you say "It's better" again, I punch you in the kidneys... across the internet) Battery on the sword? BR - please tell me there's less auto aim and that the bullets are slower... Voc, I see you have 2 Spartan laser kills - was it everything you thought it would be? First person to spike someone, describe the sheer joy... Everyone describe your first "Holy shit" moment with equipment. Voc, how's the water?
